in texas, senator cruz, in a heated town hall. could an awkward moment be coming for two conservative stars in the lone star state? here in gotham, anthony weiner's wild spiral to single digits may have opened the door for an unexpected contender and maybe the next mayor. bill de blasio. feeling like he's got a lot of mojo with just 20 days till primary day. good morning from new york city. it's wednesday, august 21st. it's "the daily rundown." my first reads of it the mornin. we're going to start with some domestic politics. the state of both political parties is anything but strong these days. the only reason there isn't much hand ringing about the democratic party is because the republican party is the one in such disa ray. the open warfare has become a more public spectacle than we've seen in years. many republican leaders are exhausted from dealing with the tea party and some seem to be downright giddy over what's happened in the last week. they don't put their name on their giddiness. not even 250 days old and already he's become probably among the most recognizable faces of the tea p

that got hit hard yesterday. the heat wave continues in texas. that's the other big story. it was 105 yesterday in dallas. that eight days in a row of 100-degree heat. when will the heat wave end? no time soon. 100 right through the upcoming weekend. no rain in sight. and speaking of rain, we had a little bit overnight in areas of the northeast. we'll have additional rain as we go throughout the day to day. not all day. airports have hit and miss delays with showers and storms. >> the summer thunderstorms really are strong. >> especially northeast, the humidity is up. >>> jackie robinson defaced, the ft. hood shooter working toward his own execution, plus, the best and worst performance in small cars when it comes to the crash tests.

to confirm a couple of these people and boom, that's it. >> let's hear the pitch. ted cruz down in texas the other night. >> if president obama decides that he's going to force a partial temporary government shutdown, and it's worth noting the last time that happened, we saw number one the parade of horrible people like to talk about on tv that didn't happen. what happened was a temporary suspension of nonessential federal government spending. >> well, that's, of course, what happens if he does blink. of course, what this is ridiculous. let's play around with this nuclear button for awhile and see what happens. if you don't do it, it doesn't do it. but if both sides take that point of view, what happens? >> then we do have a shutdown. >> and default and it keeps going. >> i think obama is going to stand this time. he knows he caved in 2011. i think he's going to stand a little tougher. most people will blame the republicans. most people know the republicans are saying no to everything and causing more trouble. >> jim you said something. he's not the oldest guy in the world. i'm older tha

difficult situation for house republican leaders. i was in iowa with ted cruz of texas and he had the activists out there enthralled by the idea of a government shutdown. but boehner doesn't want that. he was part of the gingrich war in the '90s. they are trying to talk them away from doing a shutdown and maybe use the debt limit as a way to get concessions in the past as another battlefield. >> so we're going to go from defund to delay? >> still brinks manship but they think it's a better battle. this is a bigger story of house republican leaders that can't control their owner members. the boehners of the world, they are not he had looking the discussion. >> you know, it also seems like it's broader than just in the house because you've got republicans like ted cruz who is a potential, we know, a political contender in 2016. he's going to take part in the heritage tour and do a town hall in dallas on tuesday. you even had mitch mcconnell wobbling a little bit saying -- he wasn't saying anything and now admits that defunding won't work. on top of it, you have ceo saying that the h

, for instance, what rick perry is doing down in texas, a different issue around obama care, he doesn't agree with obama care, but he is at the same time trying to get $100 million in obama care to take care of the elderly and disabled. so it does feel like there is some room for republicans to frame this issue in a way that works for them, in a way that resonates, because, again, this is about children. it's often about the elderly. it's often about the disabled. and this idea that the poor should be demonized, it just doesn't resonate with people. >> well, i hear you about the senator. but even a broke clock is right twice a day. thank you, nia-malika henderson and congresswoman karen bass. thank you for your time. >> thanks for having us on. >> thank you. >>> president obama will speak at the lincoln memorial at tomorrow's anniversary celebration of the march on washington. coming next, i'll speak with two activists fighting for the protection of the right to vote. >>> and more on donald trump facing a $40 million lawsuit for fraud. tonight you'll hear what some of the alleged victims are
